Scheduled to Begin at the end of 2019
The First Major Project at the Muni in Nearly 60 Years
It is imperative that work be done to keep this facility viable for existing play and to help attract new golfers into the game.
Greens will be rebuilt to modern day standards and restored to their original size. Historic design elements will be reintroduced.
Vistas will be opened along the Stono River.
Ponds and wetlands will be created and this material will be used used to raise areas on the back side to alleviate drainage problems.
Tees will be rebuilt to accommodate the 50,000 to 60,000 rounds played each year.
Bunkers will be rebuilt and relocated to address modern day play.
There is also the potential for a short game practice area to be built that will allow the golf staff to run more junior and adult golf programs.
Work is currently scheduled to begin at the end of 2019 with a completion date in the Fall of 2020. The total price will be around $3 million dollars with the City of Charleston funding 1.5 million and the other 1.5 million being raised thru tax deductible donations from individuals and businesses.
“An historic course, in an historic city. Charleston was the birth place of golf in America.”
— Mayor John Tecklenberg
